Maternity Protection, Parental Leave, Doctoral Studies with Child

In case of pregnancy during your doctoral procedure, you may use the Maternity Protection Act (MuSchG).

Please find further information here.

If you wish to take advantage of Maternity Protection, please contact the coordinator of the Graduate Center Dr. Alette Winter, graduate-center@bcp.fu-berlin.de

In case your pregnancy has been notified, you are only entitled to be examined within the maternity protection time (6 weeks before the birth date and 8 weeks afterward or 12 weeks in case of premature or multiple birth) if you subsequently submit a declaration of renunciation of the maternity protection time.
